Having grown up in Oregon, I’m particularly fond of Ben’s photograph. Crater Lake alone is a place of beauty, but to see the Milky Way stretching over its deep blue waters makes it all the more spectacular! Thank you, Ben!
Fun fact: At 1,949 feet (594 meters) Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States.
